Inside the Darwin Martin House
"Curated by pianist and UB Assistant Professor of Music, Eric Huebner, the concert will feature the music of Ludwig van Beethoven—a composer who held a special influence on the life and career of Frank Lloyd Wright—alongside works by Charles Ives and Antonín Dvorák, which were written around the time when Wright was creating the first of his many architectural masterpieces.

"Grammy-nominated violinist Jesse Mills joins Heubner in Beethoven’s 'Kreutzer' Sonata and the Sonata no. 4 by Ives.  For the second half of the program, Mills joins UB faculty members Jonathan Golove (cello) and Véronique Mathieu (violin), as well as guest violist Virginia Barron, for Dvorák’s beloved 'American' Quartet.

"Concert attendees will have an opportunity to take a mini-tour of the Martin House from 6:30 - 7:15 p.m.  The program will commence at 7:30 p.m., followed by a reception."
